In case you missed it, Knoxville’s own Yassin’s Falafel House was named the Nicest Place in America by Reader’s Digest and appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America today.

We couldn’t be happier for Yassin, and by the looks of the conversation on social media we aren’t the only ones. More than 90-percent of the nearly 600 mentions of Yassin’s before 11 a.m. this morning have been positive.
I can’t show enough ❤️ and pride for this. People like Yassin, and the people around Knoxville who all nominated him show exactly why I so greatly love Tennessee and the good people who make it special. #MadeInTN #WelcomeInTN https://t.co/sIRvEwsqj5

The word cloud shown below highlights some of the positive language being used to describe Yassin’s Falafel House.
It’s not surprising to folks in the Knoxville community to see this news. Yassin and his entire family and team are beloved here in large part because of the welcoming environment at each of their two restaurants in town – not to mention their outstanding food! So, it came as no surprise to us to see that the outpouring of support for Yassin’s is coming from Knoxville. But it’s interesting to see how wide-reaching this story has become. The graph below shows where some of the Twitter chatter is originating across the United States and the world.
Add the Adam Brown Social Media Command Center as one of the many voices online offering our congratulations to Yassin and his team on this well-deserved accolade!
